Abstract:

In this paper, we present innovative approaches and algorithms for the design of Command and Control C2 structures, mission planning, and course of action development. These models are integrated into the PERsonnel-based Unit of Action Design Environment PERSUADE. PERSUADE converts a textual description of mission and a graphical representation of an organization into quantitative models, and through optimization algorithms Levchuk et al., 2002, 2004 validated in several empirical studies Kleinman et al., 2003 Levchuk et al., 2003 Entin et al., 2003 Diedrich et al., 2003 will help the commanders at various echelons to synthesize command and control organizations tailored for a specific mission set. Our studies show that organizations designed using the PERSUADE methodology outperform their traditionally designed counterparts.
